He Who Overcomes Shall Inherit All Things

Revelation 21:7-8  

“He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

Jesus Christ listed many things that overcomers would receive in Revelation 2 and 3. Here the inheritance is summarized as “all things”! Christ’s true followers are those who repent of sins and commit to overcoming them with God’s help. They will no longer be liars or murderers or adulterers or those who break any of God’s laws. Instead they will be believers, and this strong faith will give them the boldness to be courageous, not cowardly.

The most wonderful part of the inheritance is to become a child of God Himself!
